A small batch Apple Pie Spice recipe that takes just minutes to whip up is all you need this holiday season. Skip the store bought version this year and make your own apple spice mix.
If you’re like me and probably most people, you don’t make apple pie all year long. Now don’t get me wrong, I love apple pie, with its sweet and tart filling and its warm delicious apple spice aroma. But I really only make it for Thanksgiving, and maybe for Friendsgiving, Christmas very rarely. So I know I won’t use an entire jar of apple pie spice in one season. That’s why I made this small batch Apple Pie Spice recipe for you so you don’t have to buy an entire jar this year.
This recipe makes just enough apple pie spice for a few pies, maybe a pie and a cake, and a few pinches in your hot chocolate. You know, just enough for your holiday baking needs and a some extra this season. Plus, you probably already have all the individual spices in your pantry, so no need to add another jar to it.
The most typical ingredients in apple pie spice are cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice, which is found in both McCormick Apple Pie Spice and King Arthur Apple Pie Spice. Other ingredients that can be found in this apple spice mix is ginger and cardamom. You know my love for cardamom, so it for sure will make it into the mix. And ginger adds to that spicy yet sweet note. Double the recipe if you need more spice, or just mix it up next time you bake for optimal freshness.
